Rustyroo Posted July 22, 2008 Share Posted July 22, 2008 About three weeks ago I posted about Rusty's paw, he had five stitches put in between his two toes on his back paw. Well, anyway, I have had the hardest time with this. No matter how much a I bandage and cover with platistic wrap (to keep the bandage dry when he goes out in the wet grass) and socks, he manages to chew through everything. Even eating some of the bandages. Tomorrow will be the third time I am taking him in to have his foot looked at. Last week the vet took out three of the stitches and said it needed to be kept dry and bandaged. He was very good about it all weekend while I was home. Yesterday, I go back to work and when I came home at lunch to check on him, he had chewed through the sock, the plastic, and the bandage. I did the process all over again and he was actually a good boy by the time I got home. So I thought I would let it air out for the evening since I was home and could watch him closely for licking. After about a half hour, he was bleeding all over again. I wrap it up again and out came the lamp shade collar which happens to be a little too big for his skinny head. I just don't know what I can do to help it start healing. I'm running out of patience and money.
